I stayed here in March 2012. Everything about it was just 'ok'. The hotel building is of course historic and beautiful because of that. I had a heavy suitcase, and there wasn't anyone there to help carry it up the many steps at the entrance. The guest services people were checking 2 of us in. We were both told different information about services and what was around. I was glad to have overheard the other conversation going on as it was much more informative.
The rooms were small, and quite frankly very outdated! It can be a historic hotel and still keep the furniture up to date. The TV was a good 15 years old. Bed was super soft. Desk didn't have a chair with a back, but an old bench, not good for trying to do a bit of work.
The restaurant was also 'just ok', it was very busy, and took a while to be served.
I would give the hotel another chance. It was an ok stay, clean, but I definitley prefer the innards of the room itself to be a bit more up to date.
